NSF REU Wisconsin 2018 (LAKES REU Project

Subject: NSF REU Wisconsin 2018 (LAKES REU Project

The LAKES (Linking Applied Knowledge in Environmental Sustainability) REU focuses on water quality and phosphorus mitigation in an interdisciplinary manner over an 8 week program (June 17-August 12), with projects this year in human geography, economics, biology, and geology.  Students will be provided with room and board and a generous stipend during their participation in the LAKES program.
This program prioritizes students under-represented in the scientific community, pairing them with mentors in individual projects.  These collectively will contribute to a more complete understanding of the dynamic interactions of the Red Cedar Watershed’s land and water, political economy, social networks, culture, and sense of place.  We will start reviewing applications for the 2018 summer program on February 11th.  Complete program information can be found here: http://www.uwstout.edu/lakes/.
